Vamped-Up Bloody Mary
Beetroot juice is one of the richest dietary sources of nitrates, which help improve blood flow and heart health. The addition of cayenne pepper in this heart-healthy, alcohol-free take on a Bloody Mary gives a further boost as cayenne is great for circulation. The garlic, lemon and parsley added to the mix are anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial.
- 4 beetroot
- 1 celery stalk
- 2 sprigs parsley, plus extra to garnish
- ½ lemon, skin and flesh
- 1cm slice horseradish
- 1 small garlic clove, peeled (optional)
- A pinch cayenne pepper
- 1 tsp coconut aminos
Feed all the ingredients through a juicer – you can add the coconut aminos through the juicer or just swirl into the juice after.
Pour into a glass(es). Garnish with parsley and drink straight away.
